Two lists ranking the top 15 national and top 16 local animal welfare, rights, and protections nonprofits were released last week by Philanthropedia, an organization that aims to advance nonprofit organizations’ transparency by ranking them on the impact of their work. Philanthropedia surveyed 170 experts of the welfare, rights, and protection of animals to identify the nonprofits making the most improvements in their fields. The Humane Society of the United States topped the national list, followed by the ASPCA, PetSmart Charities, Best Friends Animal Society, and Farm Sanctuary, respectively. On the local list, Bay Area Dog Lovers Responsible About Pitbulls came in first place, followed by the Texas Humane Legislation Network, Marin Humane Society, and Emancipet. The experts reviewed 133 national and 220 local nonprofits to determine which would make their lists.
